Kinder+ Sport Move and Learn
We’re excited to announce that we will be working with Ferrero and the EFL Trust to get kids in Gwent moving for the first time.
We’ll be delivering the +Sport Move and Learn Project to more than 16 primary schools, which encourages children to take part in physical activity, while helping them to understand the importance of a balanced diet and an active lifestyle.
Over the course of six weeks, children from Year 5 classes spend 45 minutes in the classroom learning about the body, nutrition and the importance of exercise, through participating in interactive activities. The second half of the 90-minute session is dedicated to playing football, dodgeball or handball, with two weeks spent on each sport.
A spokesperson from Ferrero said: “We’re thrilled to be bringing the +Sport Move & Learn Project to Gwent. Since we launched Kinder + Sport in the UK two years ago, we have already moved over 100,000 children from across the country. Active children are more likely to grow into active adults, so we are passionate about inspiring future generations in communities across the UK to get active and live well. The EFL Trust is the perfect partner; football clubs are at the heart of their communities and engage and inspire people from all generations – and this is exactly what we want to do with Kinder + Sport in the UK.”
County in the Community Health Ambassador Sean Rigg is a huge supporter of the Kinder + Sport Move and Learn Project, saying “It’s vital that we educate children from a young age on a healthy diet and encourage an active lifestyle. Living a healthy, active lifestyle gives school kids the energy they need to reach their potential”.
